How I Finally Identified the Right Birth Father

In 2009 the Wall Street Journal summarized my birth parent search, including my use of DNA tests, in a front-page article. That article is still online...but now I know it has the WRONG ENDING.

A few months ago I happened to test some of my new paternal-side relatives on Family Finder and another SNP-based autosomal DNA test. Shockingly, I learned that the old-technology DNA sibling test I had used in 2007 had pointed to the wrong man as my birth father. I just updated my web page on the WSJ article to explain the new conclusion.
